Blueberry Fritters

Blueberries are one of the best tasting fruits I can name. Not only are they good, they're good for you. I remember a trip to see my Grandmother in Nova Scotia one year and while there, my aunt made some blueberry dumplings in a blueberry sauce all made with fresh picked wild blueberries. It was fantastic. While I don't have that particular recipe or the wild blueberries, I hope this one appeals to your taste buds.


  • 2 Packages frozen blueberries (9 Oz. each)

  • 4 Cups all-purpose flour

  • 3/4 Cup sugar

  • 3 1/2 Tsp. baking powder

  • 3 Cups oil

  • 5 Eggs

Thaw the blueberries well; drain off syrup and save. Sift together the dry ingredients.

Measure the blueberry syrup. There should be about 1/2 cup. If not, add water to complete the measure.

Place oil in a heavy, deep kettle or deep fryer and begin heating gradually. By the time you have finished mixing the fritters, the oil should have reached 350 degrees on a deep-fat frying thermometer and be just right for frying.

Beat the eggs with the blueberry syrup until foamy. Mix quickly into the dry ingredients and fold in the berries. Drop from a tablespoon into the hot oil. Turn the fritters frequently as they cook so that they become chocolate brown on all sides. Drain on paper toweling and serve hot.
